“South Carolina has adopted the federal rules for electronic submission of injury and illness data. South Carolina employers [had] until November 25, 2018, to submit calendar year 2017 data from form 300A. In 2019 and thereafter, the deadline for data submission for the previous calendar year will be March 2. South Carolina employers must submit data using federal OSHA’s online Injury Tracking Application (ITA).” [https://www.blr.com/Workplace-Safety/Safety-Administration/Injury-and-Illness-Records-OSHA-300-in-South-Carolina]
Do you need to file electronically? “Establishments with 250 or more employees that are currently required to keep OSHA injury and illness records, and establishments with 20-249 employees that are classified in certain industries with historically high rates of occupational injuries and illnesses” are required by OSHA to file electronically.
